.net Magazine August 2013 - Bento Graphics - Responsive The Japan Times

.net Magazine featured Bento Graphics in it`s August 2013 print issue with an interview how we built The Japan Times new responsive website. It also includes a tutorial on optimising responsive typography. Note, this interview is in the print issue only, not available online.

A snippet from the interview:

.net: In a nutshell, what was the design brief?

By going with a responsive design site, the company was consciously leapfrogging to the next generation of new media. It didn’t, however, want too much of a radical visual departure that could potentially alienate longtime readers. Similarly, there was the issue of migrating more than a decade’s worth of legacy content that included different eras of coding and photo sizes, etc. JT didn’t want an obvious break between new and legacy content. We needed to balance modern and traditional design values, and certain elements, such as the current logo, had to be retained. […] As such, we wanted a clean, relatively uncluttered design, with a focus on typography and large images. Another key factor was arranging content that would keep new users on the site and ensure key content was highlighted.
